What is a Waterfowl Council?
It's doubtful if many duck hunters know the answer to that question. Yet these Councils are responsible for the planning of many programs that will influence the kind of duck hunting these same sportsmen will have in the future.
Because the activities of the Waterfowl Councils do mean so much to so many people--not only to duck hunters but to the millions of people who get their fun just watching the birds-this circular has been prepared to tell the Council story. Its purpose is to explain the basic waterfowl problem and the current approach to a solution, why the Councils came into existence, how they are organized, what they seek to do to improve management of the waterfowl resource, and ways in which interested people can help to achieve the goals that the Waterfowl Councils establish.
